May 27, 2012 1 comment

Counter-CutThe Occupy Wall Street (etc.) crowds (”Occupiers”) are loudly complaining about the “top 1%.”  They vociferously complain about the greediness of the rich who don’t deserve what they have.  Therefore – according to their thinking – we are justified in forcibly appropriating (to use a good old-fashioned Communist term) their wealth through punitive taxes and fees.  Besides, all rich people are greedy and evil who must be punished because they don’t donate everything they have for the good of mankind.  Etc.

America, America, what have you done?
Gave away your daughter, sacrificed your son
Turned from your true love, from the holy one
Lusted for worthless baubles, now the bill has come. Read more…
